Graphene is being touted as a super-material that could revolutionize everything from computing to transportation, and a recently announced application of this unique form of carbon is expected to enable the modernization of rail transport by facilitating the incorporation of new digital signaling technology.

 .

American engineering firm AECOM recently debuted a 3D-printed graphene-infused structure that arches over a railway. By simplifying the installation of digital signaling technology, the new ‘CNCTArch’ arch has the potential to completely revolutionize railway networks, according to AECOM.

 .

Standing 4.5 meters tall, the novel railway arch is fabricated from a graphene-infused polymer. The graphene material works as a kind of reinforcement for the arch, facilitating a high weight-to-strength ratio. The amount of graphene that is typically necessary to make these kinds of structures are considerably greater than for other applications. How Could 3D-Printed Graphene Structures Revolutionize Railway Networks? According to AECOM, the […]
